May 2015

Bluetooth wireless technology allows connectivity to a wide range of personal devices for data transfer, audio streaming in a seamless and fast way. Connecting the Bluetooth device in a Dell Inspiron 1525 can be done by installing the Bluetooth device driver and the Bluetooth host software. The Bluetooth host software installs like an application which provides access to the Bluetooth functionality. When both the driver and the host software are installed properly, the Bluetooth of the laptop will be ready for use. The Bluetooth hardware adapter must be turned on to connect the Bluetooth device of the Dell inspiron to other Bluetooth devices.

Issue


How to connect a Bluetooth device with a Dell Inspiron 1525? Before I did the formatting, the Bluetooth was working normally. After formating when I am trying to install the driver, it always says that the Bluetooth device is not connected. Connect the device and try again.

How to solve this problem?

Solution

  • 1) INSTALL THE BLUETOOTH DRIVER PROVIDED FOR YOUR SYSTEM. IT WILL ASK YOU TO ACTIVATE THE BLUETOOTH BY PRESSING FN+F2 KEY. THIS DOES NOT WORK!
  • 2) YOU MANUALLY INSTALL THE SOFTWARE FOR THE DRIVER...
  • NOTE: HERE SOME OF YOU MAY HAVE INSTALLED THE DRIVERS ALREADY BUT JUST CANNOT START THE CONNECTION...SO THERE IS A PROBLEM IN THE SOFTWARE WHICH BLUETOOTH USES AND NOT THE DRIVER.
  • FOR INSTALLATION OF THE SOFTWARE FOLLOW THESE STEPS.
  • 3) GO TO YOUR DRIVER INSTALLATION DIRECTORY (EX. C:delldrivers) THEN YOU FIND WHICH DRIVER YOU INSTALLED FOR YOUR BLUETOOTH ( FOR INSPIRON 1525 IT IS - R140135 ). I KNOW THAT AS I HAVE THE SAME LAPTOP!
  • 4) THEN YOU FIND THE SYSTEM YOU ARE RUNNING (A 32 BIT OR A 64 BIT) IT WILL BE WRITTEN AS Win32 OR Win64.
  • 5) THEN YOU FIND THE INSTALLATION FILE....TYPICALLY IT IS SET-UP BUT I DONT THINK IN THIS CASE IT IS BECAUSE IT DIDN'T WORK FOR ME...SO IT WILL BE SOMETHING LIKE "INST". IT IS AN APPLICATION.
  • THERE JUST INSTALL THE APPLICATION AND THEN IT WILL BE ALL READY ONCE AGAIN....
  • P.S. DONT FORGET TO TURN YOUR BLUETOOTH ADAPTER ON AFTER YOU INSTALL THE SOFTWARE.
